After running PitStop got the information that “Unusually low disk performance - Drive C has an uncached speed of 3 megabytes per second.
Checked in “Device Manager” and found transfer mode is PIO, unable to switch to DMA from device manager
Check in BIOS where DMA is down as enabled
Also believe Maxtor hard drives run in silent mode by default, another loss of performance, any one know a way to change the settings ?
Now stuck on next step, all help appreciated rusty
